Enermax Releases New Case Fan

Author: Nick Harezga

The TwisterPressure is the latest case fan design from Enermax, using a "high-pressure blade design which enhances the cooling performance and is the optimal choice for CPU coolers and any applications with dense grills." Blade angle and shape were designed specifically to create the high airflow, forcing air into the center of the fan rather than dispersing it outward. The fan also includes the patented Adjustable Peak Speed Pulse Width Modulation design that allows users to select from a range of fan RPM to be regulated within to customize the level of noise coming from the fan. The TwisterPressure is also "one of the few world-leading fans that can run at 85 degrees Celsius consistently." The TwisterPressure will have an MSRP of $14.99 and will be available in April.

X2 Products has released its first thermal grease, called X2 Thermica, which can be applied to CPU/GPU heat sinks and water blocks, and will operate between temperatures of -50 °C to 200 °C. The formula was "designed to maximize heat transfer" so it's made of 10% Silicon compounds, 45% Carbon compounds, and 45% metal oxide compounds to achieve >5W/m-K thermal conductivity. The X2 Thermica is available for $6.99 and comes in a 0.5g syringe that's sufficient for up to two processor cooler installations.

New Cooling Solution by CapTherm Announced

Category: Cooling
Posted: January 27, 2014 02:20PM
Author: Tobias Thydal

CapTherm, a company you most likely have never heard of, makes cooling solutions for datacenters, PCs, and even the military. 

Now the company is ready with a new type of CPU cooler called the MP-1120, which is a multiphase cooling solution. When CapTherm set out to design this cooler, it had to think out of the box, since copper and aluminum had been used in so many ways, and it seemed that the industry had hit a plateau. What the company did was using a technique called explosion welding to weld normally incompatible metals together, such as titanium, copper, and stainless steel, which are the components used to make the base. This however is not enough. The base is hollow and contains a non-conductive liquid, which begins to boil as the CPU heats up the base. The liquid then evaporates and travels up a 120 mm radiator. According to CapTherm, the cooler is able to run passive in most instances, but it is possible to attach a 120 mm fan to improve cooling. TweakTown claims that this cooler might offer up to ten times better performance than some of the other solutions available on the market. 

Since many PC builders like to show off their hardware, CapTherm installed a little glass window to the base and a RGB LED, so it is possible to see the liquid boil inside.

Innovation often costs money, and this cooler is no different. With an MSRP of $249, it is not a cheap cooler. However, if it lives up to the hype, it might be what you need to bring your rig to the next level. There is currently no official release date.

Taiwan-based company Prolimatech has announced the introduction of the StaticBooster 14, an accessory engineered specifically for use with the Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 14 fan.

Corsair has announced a pair of new case fans that will make up the Air Series, with low noise and LED lighting. The Air Series will use Corsair AF impeller fan blades, custom molded and ultra thin.

PowerColor has revealed the results of a collaboration with its thermal partner, the Double Blades fan design. The fan gets its name from the design, with an extra, small, fan blade attached just in front of the larger blade. With this placement of the small blade airflow is absorbed into the center of the fan. PowerColor claims a 20% increase in airflow compared to standard fan designs. The smaller fan blade also helps to reduce dust buildup.

Thermaltake is back at it with a new laptop cooler, as it recently announced the Massive SP. It's the newest member of the family after the Massive 142, but the SP includes an integrated dual speaker system for a truly unique experience. The speakers are on either side of the cooler, with a cavitiy inside to deliver the best sound possible. There's also a massive 140mm LED fan on the Massive SP with an adjustable, and concealed, speed knob to get the precise amount of cooling you need. The power button is also concealed, so that should mean any accidental power downs are a thing of the past. A pair of USB 2.0 ports are on the cooler to get more devices connected, and a duct in the front and rear of the cooler provides cable routing duties. Thermaltake has designed the Massive SP to work with laptops up to 17" in size, and has taken ergonomics into account to deliver a comfortable typing experience regardless of laptop size.

The Thermaltake Massive SP laptop cooler should be available soon, although no price or release date were mentioned.

It wasn't too long ago when Cooler Master announced the CM Storm SF-17 laptop cooler, and now there's a newer one ready to go. The CM Storm SF-15 has many of the same features of the bigger SF-17, just this one is designed to hold laptops up to 15.6" in size. Cooling capabilities are handled by a 160mm fan that spins between 700 and 1200RPM, so everything should be nice and quiet even during a heavy gaming session. A four port USB 2.0 hub helps provide plenty of access to various flash drives, external storage, and anything else you may need connected to your laptop. Cooler Master has taken cable routing into account with a grooved top side on the SF-15, so your power cable, mouse cord, and anything else won't be in the way. For a bit of visual fidelity, the SF-15 has six LED strips underneath for a sweet glowing effect.

Cooler Master Announces New Laptop Cooler

Evercool recently released a new laptop cooler, and now it is Cooler Master's turn. The company is known for everything from cabinets to CPU coolers to PSUs and the list goes on. Now it is time for a laptop cooler, and Cooler Master promises to keep things cool.

The SF-17 is the latest addition to the company's line of Strike Force (SF) laptop coolers, and it is based on the award winning SF-19 USB 3.0. The SF-17 is built to accommodate up to 19 inch laptops, which in turn means that a large fan is needed to keep the laptop within reasonable temperatures. Cooler Master therefore chose a 180 mm turbine fan to ensure that the laptop will keep its cool during the heat of the battle. The fan speed can be adjusted to suit the user's needs. Since the potential user can vary a lot in both size and shape, the SF-17 can be adjusted in height, so that the user can comfortably use the laptop for hours without any wrist pain. And since this laptop cooler is intended for gamers on the go, it has a handle to ease transportation.

Price and availability varies based on region, and it is unfortunately only meant for the U.S. and Canada.

One useful aspect of desktops is that as hot as they get, you do not need to touch them, but this luxury does not always exist with laptops. To protect you from a hot laptop, many companies build laptop coolers, including Cooler Master, which has just revealed its NotePal U2 Plus, a new version of its U2 design.

The new cooler has several useful features including the ability to quickly reposition its two fans, to put air where it needs to be. It also has legs to elevate your laptop to a more ergonomic angle, while improving airflow. On both legs are cable management loops too, so you can get you cables out of your way. If you have to get and go, an elastic safety belt can hold your laptop to the U2 Plus's underside, protecting it from scuffs and scratches.

It comes in a version with LEDs (red, blue, green, white, and orange) and one without, so everyone should be able to find something suitable for their system.

The NZXT FZ-200 is available today, with the LED versions coming in at $20.99 and the non-LED one at $17.99.
